With the elimination of Khaled Ali, Stanislav Mertsen has been moved to balance tables and is sat two seats to the left of other big stack Fahredin Mustafov.
Meanwhile on the other table it folded to Kenny Hallaert in the small blind, with only short-stack Ismael Bojang in the big blind.
Hallaert folded and Bojang looked down at pocket Aces, showing them to the table.
"Oh my God," said tablemate Artan Dedusha, "What a dodge!"
"It's the first time I've had nines or better today," said Bojang, chipping up slightly.
